I assume they'll do the same for war profiteering

Just read this story. Man, it's only a few months since hurricane Katrina hit, and they've got under-cover investigations, Congressional hearings, reports and talk of prosecution, all about hurricane relief fraud. I can only assume that the multi-year delay on investigating our Iraq war contractors is due to the intensity of the super secret, super awesome investigation, which will most certainly be followed by a super hardcore prison sentence and super-public process. Man, I can't wait!

The government doled out as much as $1.4 billion in bogus assistance to victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, getting hoodwinked to pay for season football tickets, a tropical vacation and even a divorce lawyer, congressional investigators have found.


Agents from the General Accountability Office, the investigative arm of Congress, went undercover to expose the ease of receiving disaster expense checks from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.


The findings are detailed in testimony, obtained by The Associated Press, that is to be delivered at a hearing Wednesday by the House Homeland Security subcommittee on investigations.


"This is an assault on the American taxpayer," said Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, chairman of the subcommittee that will conduct the hearing. "Prosecutors from the federal level down should be looking at prosecuting these crimes and putting the criminals who committed them in jail for a long time."

PREACH ON brotha McCaul!!
